3 Songs: On Repeat

David Vandervelde – “One More Time” (For Shadow Sides, his third album, the singer-songwriter recorded directly to a four-track, using no computers for a purely analog affair.  The new album released as a joint venture between Secretly Canadian, Park The Van and Burger Records is his most personal yet; dealing with addiction and the death of his friend and collaborator - former Wilco member, Jay Bennett.  Those heavy themes are masked by bright, soul-infused power-pop melodies with swirling Beach Boys-esque harmonies.)  

Death From Above 1979 – “Trainwreck 1979” (The punk n’ roll duo returned this week with the release of The Physical World, their highly-anticipated and long-awaited sophomore album.  Out now via Warner Brothers, the reunion album is a triumphant return that feels both nostalgic and fresh, delivering their roaring fuzzed-out bass-led grooves, danceable rhythms and sweat-soaked debauchery once again to a new generation of listeners.)

Floating Action – “Unrevenged” (Floating Action is the moniker for N.C. singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Kauffman who recently released Body Questions, his stunning sixth album and first for new label home New West Records.  Kauffman expertly crafts his catchy pop songs with eclectic elements of folk rock, Motown soul, and African rhythms which has made him a favorite of and go-to session player for Jim James of My Morning Jacket and Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys.)
